Yoshihiro Takayama

Yoshihiro Takayama

Yoshihiro Takayama is synonymous with the word tough. Growing up in Japan, he pursued a career in rugby and from there he moved on to the world of professional wrestling. At 6'5 and 253 lbs the imposing Takayama wreaked havoc in the pro wrestling ranks ... among his signature moves, the "Everest" German Suplex and the knee kick! Now moving on to mixed martial arts, Takayama relies less on technique and more on guts. Most of his matches are total slug fests and one thing is almost always certain---the match will not go to a decision! With his flowing blonde mane and slogan of "no fear," it's no surprise why Takayama is so popular in Japan!
